Cricket Wireless today announced the availability of the ZTE Chorus with Muve Music. The Chorus is based on Android (but it isn't a full Android smartphone) and includes Cricket's streaming music service. The full retail cost of the Chorus is $199.99, but Cricket is selling it for $49.99 via its web site today. Cricket's Muve Music voice, text, web, and music plans cost $55 per month and do no require an annual contract.
Cricket Wireless today announced that its phones and services can now be ordered from Amazon.com. Cricket said that the Samsung Vitality and the ZTE Score Android phones will be available first, both of which are compatible with its Muve Music plans. The Huawei Pillar feature phone can also be ordered from Amazon starting today. Cricket will eventually sell most of its devices through Amazon.com, and the ZTE Chorus, Kyocera Domino, and the Samsung Chrono will be available in the coming weeks. Cricket's new availability through Amazon gives it nationwide reach.
When is Android not Android? When it's the ZTE Chorus for Cricket. This unique music-focused feature phone reminds us of the Motorola i886 with its unique use of Android software to create a powerful phone that isn't actually a smartphone. Read on for our hands-on impressions of this curious creature.
